BMW Intelligent Lighting Lasers

Unlike other modern automotive lighting systems, the BMW M4 Concept Iconic Lights employs “High Power Laser” diodes for projecting driver information directly onto the road in front of the vehicle, allowing them to concentrate on traffic even in pitch black darkness. Selective Beam technology helps the headlights adapt themselves to oncoming traffic, to make sure the drivers are not blinded by the light, thanks to laser technology. Plus, the Dynamic Light Spot function warns drivers of incoming pedestrians or animals from a distance of 100 meters. Click here to view the first image in this week’s geek life gallery.
